    AFAIK, Toyota doesn't make different colored logos. The ones you see are probably all DIY.

    take it off, clean it real good, use some adhesion promoter and then paint it the color you want it. its cheap to do, and very easy. i painted mine black........let it dry for an hour, then put it back on...turned out great.:)

    i ordered one of those polished aluminum billet grilles awhile ago. then i decided i didnt like that alum look anymore so i just took it off and painted it a flat black to match the rims. easy stuff. every couple months i do another coat of paint to touch it up.

    i left the toyota emblem alone though cause i like the look of the silver on black.

    a little hard to see the quality of it in the pic since i took it with my phone. but it looks good in person.

    you can always black out your grille........prep it real good and use some adhesion promoter and then paint it....or do like im gonna do and use bedliner on it..kinda like i did my bumpers.

    What color is your truck? If it's black, I highly reccommend blacking out the emblem, grille, and bumpers.

    Here's mine:
